Nicola Rutt: Industrial Rehab and transforming old buildings
Mar 05, 2020 Season 2 Episode 13
Daniel Moscrop / Nicola Rutt

With International Women's Day this weekend, who better to talk to than Nicola Rutt of HawkinsBrown. At the time on writing Nicola was recently shortlisted for the W Award (formerly Women in Architecture Award) and for the MJ Long Prize for her and her team’s incredible work on Here East.

With a passion for the creative re-use of buildings, Nicola specialises in bringing underused, unloved properties back to life with a focus on designing spaces that bring people together and foster innovation.

In this episode, we talk about the pros and cons of refurbishing existing industrial structures, rather than starting from scratch, how to go about working on such large-scale projects, how to inject identity into a building which lacks one, and how to create an environment which will hopefully end up being ‘cool’ – without trying to force it.
